Female artist in Pokémon: X & Y

Artist is a Trainer Class introduced in Generation IV. They are middle-aged men or young women interested in the subject of art and travel the world to find a masterpiece to draw. They mostly use Pokémon that can "sketch" the player's Pokémon's moves, such as Smeargle, Aipom, or even rare Pokémon like Sigilyph sometimes.

In Pokémon X and Y, a double battle team called the Artist Family can be encountered.
